AN urges the Mexican Foreign Ministry to stop the Mexican Embassy from being used as a refuge for a fugitive from justice

February 01, 2024. MEXICO CITY, Mexico.



• The Mexican diplomatic headquarters in Ecuador must stop intervening in the criminal process of the former government official of Rafael Correa, sentenced by the Ecuadorian justice system to eight years in prison for criminal association: Mariana Gómez del Campo, Secretary of International Affairs of the CEN of the PAN.



 • It is shameful that the Foreign Ministry and the Mexican Government continue to damage bilateral relations with the countries of the region.


National Action urgently urges the Mexican Foreign Ministry so that in the case of the former vice president of Ecuador, Jorge Glas Espinel, our Embassy stops being used as a refuge for a fugitive from justice.


Since December 17, 2023, Jorge Glas Espinel, former vice president of Ecuador, has been taking refuge in the Mexican Embassy; The former official of Rafael Correa's government was sentenced to eight years in prison for criminal association in the Odebrecht case and for bribery in the 2012-2016 Bribery case. He currently has a prison order.


Jorge Glas was serving part of his sentence for corruption in freedom. However, the Prosecutor's Office requested his location to comply with judicial proceedings in the case for which he is being investigated, so he appeared at the headquarters of the Mexican Embassy to request his entry and safeguard; It is unacceptable that in this government he is abusing the figure of political asylum to protect criminals who are fugitives from justice.


The Mexican Foreign Ministry must stop obstructing the work of the Ecuadorian Prosecutor's Office immediately. Let us remember that during this administration they have already appointed Ambassadors as 'non grata' people for intervening in local affairs, as has been the case in Bolivia and Peru.
